What’s in a Kiss?

Posted on: June 20th, 2012 by Terri

Hello Guys and Gals,

Today my thoughts and musings centre around a First kiss.  Can you remember yours??

I don’t think you would necessarily appreciate my going into great detail about the school disco and the boy with the  puppy fat who tried to plant one on my lips but landed on my eyelid…so instead here is a first kiss movie fact that I bet you didn’t know!

The first smooch on the Silver Screen was a 47 second film from 1896 aptly named The Kiss! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Kiss_(1896_film)

It was one of the first movies ever shown commercially to the public and my what a flurry did it cause! There was huge outcry at such a scene, calls for police action and the kissing was described as ‘beastly’ Oh-er!

I particularly like this quotation from the time-

“They get ready to kiss, begin to kiss, and kiss and kiss and kiss in a way that brings down the house every time.”

Well I have to say, that sounds like my kind of kissing! Much better than a fumbled attempt on your eye at any rate…

Happy smooching people!
